When was it when your dream of working from home became a pressing necessity? It may have been while choking on car fumes during the morning commute or when the bus was late again. Or it may have been when you were trying to get a project done but your colleague was talking about their relationships or what their cat vomited up the night before. Perhaps it was the micromanaging boss who does not know what you’re supposed to do, but tells you how, in great depth, what you should be doing even though you know it’s going to fail?

Working from home can be the most fantastic and rewarding of lifestyle choices, but you also have to roll with the downsides and put a lot of effort in. If you get it right, you could earn way more money, work in in comfort, and most of all, set your own schedule. It’s all down to you. So, do you have the mettle? Can you put in the time? The discipline? Can you ignore the temptations and deal with the loneliness?

Your crucial, first step, is to work out what kind of work you are going to do from home. Is it your current job as a remote worker? Will you take your skills into the freelance, gig economy? Or will you build your own business?

In fact, there are 85 good reasons to quit your job and work from home, which I’ve covered for you, but there are also many things you need to consider first. Remember the benefits, be wary of the downsides, know how to work smart, and don’t fall for all the myths.
